For Griffon Vulture;-around 100 pairs can be found on the cliffs just after Bielle village in the Ossau valley .In the village of Aste-Béon a video show in the "falaise aux vautours" observation centre ("the Cliff of the Vultures") allows you to witness the routine of these birds of prey (live thanks to cameras set up on the site) : their meals, waking up, birth, the young learning to fly, the sharing of prey, etc.

A Birdwatching Guide to France,South of the Loire,including Corsica
France is one of the largest countries in Europe (four times the size of Britain).Therefore, there are two Arlequin press guides to France - one for the north and one for the south. In this superb 'where to watch' guide a line is drawn running from the Loire estuary on the Atlantic coast to Lake Geneva in the east.This division is partly climatic and geographic, as can be seen by the bird populations (for example, very few if any Fulmars, Black Storks, Grey-headed Woodpeckers, Rock Pipits, Collared Flycatchers, Icterine Warblers or Rooks breed south of this line (though the latter are rapidly expanding their range) while Short-toed Eagle,Eagle and Scops Owls, Rock Sparrow, Tawny and Water Pipits,Ortolan Bunting,Crag Martin, Fan-tailed,Orphean ,Sardinian and Sub-alpine Warblers rarely occur north of it).
